Woman fails in bid to claim maintenance

Ms Chan Wing Sun, 49, had claimed that her lecturer husband, Professor Anthony Guo, 52, used to maintain her on $6,500 a month when they were married.

In judgment grounds released on Monday, she added: "The applicant is expected to exert reasonable efforts to secure gainful employment and contribute to preserve her pre-breakdown lifestyle." The Chinese couple's total disclosed assets were $9.28 million, of which Ms Chan was given 41 per cent, or $3.8 million.
